Your life-saving work on me.
Dear Dr. Rick,
I was impressed and pleased by your recent email announcing your future. It reminds me of your life-saving work on me. I do not remember the exact dates, but I know that it is 20 years ago that I had the well remembered fall at home from 10 feet up onto my left hip.
No broken bones; however, several parts were moved out of line. After several trips to your office and dozens more since, I have managed to stay mostly pain-free for 20 years! I’d say that’s pretty good for a 93 year old man!
During this period of time, I have come to cherish and respect your friendship as well as your professional help. I am sorry I missed seeing you before your trip but other issues interfered. I will see you when you return if Dr. Tyler allows you into “His Office”!
Seriously, your presence and help is very much appreciated. I would not be the same person today otherwise.
